Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to approve the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Randy Romanski, Interim Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) issued the following statement on the vote:

“It’s good to see progress being made on this agreement. Wisconsin farmers have endured more than their fair share of challenges in the past several years, from low commodity prices to harsh weather. Trade uncertainty has had a significant impact on farmers’ bottom line as well. I’m optimistic that the approval of USMCA by the Senate next year will provide some of the certainty and stability our agricultural businesses need and deserve. As always, DATCP will continue to work with our local, state, and federal partners to open markets for Wisconsin’s outstanding products and commodities.”
